  • To those complaining it’s not free... Jul 17, 2019

    By brjames0408
    I’m an app developer myself and to expect someone to spend months to years developing this app (apps are quite tedious) for nothing is a bit ridiculous. Please keep in mind they have families to feed too; they don’t go to your job and ask for free products/services so I’m not sure why it would be any different here. $9.99 a month is very reasonable and if it’s that big of a help then you have to make finding the money for it a priority - find a side hustle (again $9.99 is doable). You can’t expect everything for nothing in life and you can’t expect this app to be given the full attention it needs without the developers being compensated in some form. This app was carefully thought out and designed; if it’s that important to you to have an app similar to this try creating it yourself and I’m sure months after you’re done you’ll change your mind. :)

    I’m not sure who will see this in the sea of reviews. Most of which are 5 star reviews. For me this is not a 5 star app. It’s a 5 star concept. I’ve had it for a month—like other women I wanted to start the New Year “getting back on track”. I thought this was a great app to do that. I quickly got board. And the content that didn’t bore me was over with after 2 mins. I just wish it had more. More important I wish it would update the content regularly. I’ve been waiting for new bedtime stores for weeks. Where’s the rest of the chapters to Little Women and Alice in Wonder. Once you finish a session (which is usually only 2 mins for 5 days) then what? It takes more than 10 mins a week to learn to love yourself, to learn to accept yourself, to not get stressed out. WE NEED MORE. Also. I’m 32– I know this is for women but I feel like some of the content is for younger women. I don’t need to learn to touch myself. I don’t need to learn how to play mind games to make men interested in me. And I don’t need to learn to say the F word. It’s already my favorite word and I’m content with canceling my subscription. I won’t miss it. I really hope they can update their and add more content regularly. I really wanted to love this app. If anyone needs me I’ll be going to Calm (which is also cheaper) you MOREEEEE bang for your buck.

  • I can tell the app is amazing Apr 5, 2019

    By Carolyn Levin
    I’ve been exploring the app for a few days now and most every title that I’ve come across definitely sounds like something I would like to listen to. The only problem is that I am not able to access any of the sessions due to them all being Premium. I don’t have Premium and I’m didn’t download a free app only to buy the main feature (I’m sure many others feel the same way). There should absolutely be an abundance of free sessions that users of the app can be able to use. I’m sure the Premium sessions are totally awesome, but it would be great if we could have free access to a bunch of less-awesome sessions per say. And I don’t mean just samples of the session itself, I mean full sessions that people can actually get something out of. I’m so excited to start using the app but, for now, there really is nothing to use. This is the only reason why I’m giving the app a 4 rather than a 5 star review. Everything else the app features is superb!

    This company's customer service is a JOKE. I realized I never got a notification about my trial ending and canceled it a mere 45 minutes past day 7. Emailed to ask for a refund. Got an automated response saying they'd get back to me in 1-2 business days. It's been 7. GARBAGE.

  • Mostly disappointing but slightly insightful content Feb 26, 2020

    By 1 :) 1
    I downloaded the app because I saw an advertisement for it on Instagram, and thought why not. When I opened the app, I was initially skeptical because of immense focus on just empowering women, which is a good concept. However, the execution of the app creates an exclusionary environment because not everyone feels supported, which is not fair especially since majority of the content is general information for all people. Another issue I have with the app is that after only one sample audio a pop up comes up that requires you to sign up for a free 7 day trial or pay an outrageous amount for premium. It’s disappointing and quite ironic that in our corrupt society there is an entire market created out of coping with the society itself. Thus, creating an endless cycle of superficial values that take advantage of and sanitize the real horrors of living in a world full of systems that reduce and commodify human life. For example, many people can not afford the overpriced amount for premium does that mean they don’t desire happiness? Absolutely not! There are many free ways to cope with problems like reading articles online or listening to music or talking to friends, thus proving the app does not uniquely fix any issues and is quite unnecessary. Therefore, the only reason for its existence is to exploit stressed out people.

    I have a few different categories chosen. When I entered the app today to continue my sessions there was a recommended lesson that wasn't there yesterday or the day before. I'm already listening to 4 different lessons, and the recommended lesson REMOVED a one that I was actually listening to DAILY, causing me to have to search the app for the lesson that was removed. I cant even remove the recommended lesson. If I wanted another lesson, I would search for it myself. I can't save my lessons :/

    By heyatleastimhonest
    I delved in during the trial period and was thankful for there being one. Minor things: No night mode. The time I have for quiet and reflection is night. The design is bright. You can flip your phone over or turn off the screen but this would be a minor change that people will enjoy. Music. I hope that was free music because it's just awful. It's the same phrase over and over. I have usedany meditation apps and this choice boggles my mind. Ifd never have expected soft, background music to be distracting. Difficult to see text. The background is bright but the text isn't contrasted well & it's small. I get some people won't have a problem but this could easily be fixed by allowing a few options or even dimming the background-again. Major: Content. There's a lot of content. Cool. The content-proper is not for me. I have a background in psychology and I work as a parole officer. Cognitive-Behavioral is my preferred approach. The approach here is basically too sidling, too ephemeral. In the who speech, the same explication of a situation and examples could be done in 5-10 minutes. My takeaway if the 'point' & the action step from these could be delivered more succinctly. I have had years of therapy & work as a civil servant. I currently have a therapist, as all therapists and counsors should. All of this to say that I really do have experience with getting and giving counsel. The concept of the app is good. My experience with it shows that it's not for me.

  • Grateful to have found this! Dec 2, 2019

    By Cast25
    This app as so much useful content. If you are interested In self development and building your boundaries without feeling guilty. I recommend this app. I have looked for apps to help me and I believe this one is worth it. I do wish it was acceptable to all girls especially teens who can’t afford to pay for apps. Like I said it worth it if you can. $5 a month is as much as a burger you would buy and finish is 10 minutes. This will help you understand yourself and that will last you a life time. Learning and applying this to your life are to different things. Apply it to yourself and if you cannot maybe you feel you don’t deserve to, but you do. This app will help you see that for yourself. I listen to it in the morning or before bed. When I can actively listen to it. I share it because I feel it will help people as much as it has helped me. 🌻

  • Definitely Targets a Specific Demographic Jan 8, 2020

    By ProfCroco
    I actually loved a lot of this content, but as a newly divorced, single mom in my 40s, I felt very much like the target demographic was a good 10-20 years younger than me who are single and childless. There is nothing at all wrong with that, and I wish I had had this as a young woman. As a woman who is more mature and has worked a lot on personal growth, though, I wanted to feel seen, first of all, and I wanted more than a few sound bite takeaways from each session. Again, the content here for an app of this kind is pretty great. We just need something like it for those of us who want to dig deeper and aren’t as charmed by “Yassss” and vocal fry.

  • Love it Jan 6, 2020

    By BreeAlli
    I LOVE this app and literally just downloaded it and listened to a couple things. $60 a YEAR is nothing. With a 7 day trial so you can decide before buying. This is something that can truly HELP you but you will be quick to spend money on going out to eat, alcohol, cigarettes just in a week or two. I can’t afford it either BUT my mental health is important enough I can sacrifice something I know I would want to spend money on that I shouldn’t anyways, so why not. I’m going through a really hard period in my life and can already tell that this app will be the ONE. And I’m usually skeptical about self help apps. There’s

  • Not complaining but just so everyone knows it’s not free Feb 16, 2020

    By baiahdhkfksnakdbfhjd
    This is such a quality app and you can tell it’s very developed but just so everyone knows you can do VERY limited things on the app if you are planning on using it for free. They should have just charged money from the start (to download it) cause it ran me through this whole set up process and got me really excited only to disappointment me once I started actually looking through and using the app.

  • I love it but $$ is always needed Dec 23, 2018

    By audreyanya
    I fall in love easily with apps that are about self-care all the time, but you always need money in order to do anything on them and I think that’s kind of unfair. I know that it won’t change though, being in a really consumer-heavy place. I do appreciate do some free sessions, but they’re only intros. I just think people that don’t have the money to do these kinds of things with self-care need to be noticed because they deserve it too.

  • Misleading in a way.. Apr 25, 2019

    By Milfred Jacobson
    I do like this app and I think very good points are made in each session, but personally, I’m young and still in school and I was really excited to find out more about how to learn to help support myself through different issues in my life with this. But I cannot afford to pay for premium as I am still only in school. It would be nice to have free options. I feel like now I’ve downloaded this in hopes of getting more in depth with myself, and now I can’t afford to get the full experience. Which is quite discouraging to be fully honest. But I think the idea behind it is in good efforts.. many people looking for help nowadays consist of younger girls in hopes of finding reassurance in their lives. And if you’re in highschool- it’s hard to afford things such as this if you’re just looking for another opinion to help clear your head.

  • I like it but disappointed in the lack of content Aug 8, 2020

    By morganbelle2198
    I accidentally paid for the year subscription but decided I would stick with it because I enjoyed some of the sessions and the sleep guides (though I wish they were all longer). I understand with covid it’s not necessarily the easy task but I feel as though I’m the amount of time I’ve been on the app not much has been added. I noticed one addition. Especially with the bedtime tales, I would like to see following chapters of the books. I love the concept and the girl power and the lessons being taught but there are also many things that don’t apply to me and I’ve listened to the ones that do already. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add more stuff I would love to continue use of this app due to the messages it’s getting out there and the help it can bring to women.

    I havent used this app very much yet, I Just downloaded it, then started reading the reviews... there are a lot of people complaining about having to pay for it. If I may beg the question, wouldn't you have to pay for any other form of help, such as seeing a therapist?? I'd say for the ease of access, the support from other women, and having a guide always at your hand, it would be well worth the money! If it helps, I'll be paying $10 a month. We'll see.

  • Basically have to buy the premium version Sep 11, 2019

    By Johnay Cranford
    I really liked this app when I fist download it. finally an app I can actually utilize but I deleted because once everyone cost money. I recently re downloaded it because I want to stay meditation and the only video the app has for three is for 3 minutes and it’s one video. I don’t want to buy the premium I don’t want a month subscription. I’m not mad that They charge I’m just upset that they don’t have any free videos available to use. At least 5 I think that is very reasonable and you can Change Them out every month. This is a great app but I just am not going to buy it you should cater to people who don’t want to buy the premium.

  • Free App? Apr 28, 2019

    By EllaJo91
    It’s fine and dandy to have an app that costs money, but advertise as such in the App Store. If I would have known I had to pay to unlock everything after installing a free app I wouldn’t have downloaded it. Some people who cannot afford therapy/counseling/etc can not afford a monthly subscription. Seeing all the articles that would be helpful and not being able to look or open them without paying is like taking a kid to a candy store and then saying “nope, none for you unless you give me your allowance.” It feels very unlike what you are trying to promote or endorse; would not know since I cannot read any articles. I like the idea, but I can journal on my own time and set alarms/reminders on my own phone.

  • Cool app, very disappointing outcome personally Jun 24, 2020

    By gradeAreviews
    Cool app honestly was very excited to get it and maybe get tips on self care or help with the breakup I’m going through and hard times, it’s hard to feel like men are so unsupported in the sense of self care (yes I’m a softy) but it shouldn’t be geared towards women when men are also trying to better themselves in these hard times. And that’s not that I don’t support it being just an app focused on women but it would’ve been really nice to feel involved at this time, that’s the reason I’m willing to take my time and give some feedback as well as leave 2 stars
